As a result, Violet begins to heal. Finch, however, is getting worse. He suffers from an undiagnosed bipolar disorder and therefore, deals with very high highs and very low lows.
His behavior demonstrates the characteristic manic periods of impulsive excitability as well as the lethargic, pointless mindset during the depressive periods.
He is also beaten by his father and bullied at school. He also refuses to be diagnosed because the labels make him feel trapped. The one shining spot in his life is his blossoming relationship with Violet.
They wander around Indiana together some more; however, on one occasion they accidentally stay out until the next morning, angering Violet's parents and forbidding their daughter from seeing Finch again.
This begins a downward spiral for Finch, who ends up getting expelled from school. Although he still sees Violet on occasion, Finch is easily able to hide his worsening depression from her.
Violet doesn't realize the seriousness of the situation and wonders if Finch is losing interest in her. One particularly bad night, Finch decides to end his life.
He takes a handful of sleeping pills, but almost immediately regrets it. He goes to the emergency room and gets his stomach pumped.
After that, he tries to get help through a suicide support group in a nearby town. There, he runs into Amanda, another girl he knows from school. She is concerned about Finch's suicide attempt and tells Violet about it.
They fall in love. Finch, however, continues with erratic behavior. He sometimes disappears for days at a time without contacting anyone.
One day, while he and Violet are swimming at the Blue Hole, he disappears under the water. By the time he resurfaces, Violet is distraught and pushes him to tell her more about himself, threatening to leave if he doesn't comply.
He reveals that he had been beaten by his father as a child, and that his mother is absent in his life. On one occasion, Finch and Violet they stay out all night by accident, upsetting Violet's parents.
At school that day, Finch loses his temper on Violet's boyfriend, Roamer, after Roamer calls him "Freak". The two boys fight in the hall, and Finch takes off in his car.
Violet, who broke up the fight, ends up in the principal's office with Finch's friend, Charlie. While they talk, Finch attends a support group session in a nearby town, recommended to him by the school guidance counselor.
Once Violet leaves the school, she heads to Finch's house. Since he is still at the meeting, she talks with Finch's sister, Kate, who then leaves for work.
While she is working, at a bar, Finch enters and prompts her to talk about their father. This causes her to worry about him, though he reassures her.
He leaves for their house, where Violet is waiting. In his room, she begs him to open up to her.
He shouts at her to leave. Finch disappears again. Violet tells her father how she and Finch met, and expresses her concern over his latest disappearance.
He suggests she check in places they had visited together. I loved it. I didn't want it to end, but at the same time I just felt like it was procrastinating.
Little teeny bit not okay. BUT WHO EVEN CARES?! But I have to warn you Not in the "ouch, hate that" in the "I FREAKING CANNOT HANDLE THIS RIGHT NOW.
I was nearly number. The characters are just so real, I felt like I was in the book. Also, I never do this, but I lost track of time.
At one point I read for 2 hours straight without even noticing I'd been reading that long. I never do that. I have a short attention span.
So I don't know why you're still here. Go preorder or read this book or something. View all comments. Spacey N. I have had friends who have committed and I am one of the only to bring flowers to their graves and I just felt like something that needed to be said because remember their life not the way they left Jan 24, Emily May rated it did not like it Shelves: young-adult , contemporary , Hmm, so there's a girl whose name is a colour Violet and a boy whose name makes him sound like he burst from the pages of a Dickens' novel Theodore Finch and they're both super quirky, intelligent and know the names of a bunch of dead poets.
Then there's that whole death thing hanging over this novel Oh, right. And they make universal stateme Hmm, so there's a girl whose name is a colour Violet and a boy whose name makes him sound like he burst from the pages of a Dickens' novel Theodore Finch and they're both super quirky, intelligent and know the names of a bunch of dead poets.
And they make universal statements like "who could possibly love a book like this? Which is why I'm not going to tell you to do anything; but I am going to strongly recommend that you consider reading Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock instead of this book.
Because the theme is the same, only I believe it to be so so much better. Perhaps it's just me, but I am getting so tired of these Lifetime special kind of books that seem to hit me over the head with emotional manipulation.
John Green , of course, created his own set of quirky characters to make a humorous book about cancer, and now we've reached the same for suicide.
If you did happen to love The Fault in Our Stars and other books like it, don't let me keep you from snapping this book up - it probably will become a new favourite.
But it just did not work for me. These characters all feel so fake; like plot tools the author uses to extract our emotions. From the very first page, I felt like the book took centre stage and introduced itself as: "I am a book about suicide.
Cry, bitches! Not even any surprises. Apparently, it's some flaw in my character for not loving All the Bright Places because these books constantly claim commercial and critical success.
I should be drowning in my own tears and mucus right now. Oh well, sucks. And honestly Augustus Waters and Theodore Finch?

I like that realistic style, but I also enjoyed Violet and Theodore. Forgive Me was an interesting read but the main character was honestly very off putting and ego-centric in everything he did.
Sophia Buschini I agree to a certain extent but I did really love this book. Like you said though I knew exactly how it was going end. Feb 02, AM.

Right at the time I was reading this, I felt like I could really relate to the main characters and their depression and I think that's why I thought I loved it so much and why I somehow overlooked some really concerning things.
It's kind of written in a way that the characters are nothing but their illnesses, if that makes any sense. It felt like there was nothing else t Seeing other people's reviews on this book that I really trust made me realise a lot of things that I don't really agree with.
It felt like there was nothing else to them except for their depression. That's so sad because I feel like this book was written just for the purpose of having mentally ill characters, rather than crafting a story centred around the actual characters and their personalities, ya know?
Also, what the hell were the adults DOING in this book?! Obviously nothing, because they completed ignored what was going on instead of getting these people help.
It was just really weird. The writing was nice, but other than that, I can't really see any redeeming aspects of this novel that could change my opinion back to the way it was.
The hype for this book was huge and I was so caught up in the huge thing that happened at the end of this book, that I failed to see anything else.
I'm really sorry if this is your favourite book or something, but people's opinions can change after a lot of deliberation and personal growth and stuff.
Hope you all understand that I'm just being honest! View all 49 comments. I'm going to say a lot of personal things on here then go on with the review which will include spoilers, but I will put up the spoiler alert before I do.
I also want to add some quotes from the book and the author's note at the end. This book is about teen suicide and bullying. But, it's also about some wonderful people, happy moments and a bit of crazy-wonderful.
When I was young I was bullied in school most of my life. I ended up quitting school and getting a high school diploma through the mail, which is legit but doesn't seem so since I never finished school.
I never told my family about this and to this day at 43 they still do not know. My entire family think I was just some kind of a loser that didn't want to go to school.
Never judge a book by it's cover right? When I got sick, physically in it put me in the hospital overnight and I came out with all kinds of mental disorders.
I'm guessing they were brewing on the surface as I have always had some anxiety. I came out with severe panic disorder, agoraphobia fear of going outside for me , ocd, depression and then came the physical stuff being fibromyalgia and arthritis from all the hard playing I used to do outside before all of this and hereditary with the arthritis, I'm assuming.
All of these things turned so bad that I wanted to kill myself many times. I still feel suicidal to this day, and yes I see an psych, no I don't take a million pills, only one for panic.
The one thing that held me back was my dog Dakota, I never wanted to leave him, he was my son. Then he had to be euthanized suddenly in Feb. He just collapsed and then here I am having to kill him.
And I thought this is it, I can finally leave and go with him. One out of the couple of friends I have, sent me flowers because she knew he was my son and how much it about killed me much less me killing myself.
Surprising to me was that my dad was very understanding and always checking on me since I cried every day. My family knew I always said I wanted to leave this world when he goes, so I guess he was a little worried.
And my stupid self let my family and doctor talk me into getting another dog. Now here I am with my rescued greyhound and I don't want to leave her, but I tell you I feel the pull of suicide a lot.
I even tell her about it. Her name is Lucy. The reason I'm telling all of these personal things is I want some people to know a few things from someone that really thinks about these things.
It doesn't make any of us freaks and we can't "just get over it. If it's not physical it's not real, well I would like them to walk a day in any person's shoes with any kind of mental illness.
If we could "just get over it" we would have freakin' done that by now. I'm going to add a quote from the book that sums up how I feel personally and I know alot of people feel the same way.
It just feels like there's no choice. Like it's the most logical thing to do because what else is there? You think, "No one will even miss me.
They won't know I'm gone. The world will go on, and it won't matter that I'm not here. Maybe it's better if I was never here.
I even asked my parent why they even had me. And you see so many people seem like they are ok, they can hide these things. Look at Robin Williams, it doesn't matter if your rich or poor, if something is going on with you and there is nothing to be done or no one sees it Being lonely sucks!
Okay, let's move on to the review! I liked Violet too, but it's Finch that steals the story. He is fun, crazy, seems like he is so full of life, but he's not..
Finch and Violet meet at the top of the bell tower at school. This was not a planned meeting, this was a random meeting of two people that where thinking of committing suicide.
Can you imagine, someone messes up your suicide attempt. These stupid, insignificant prats are yelling for Finch to jump.
They should have the crap beat out of them. People like that make me sick. Anyway, Finch ends up talking Violet down from the tower but lets everyone think it's the other way around and she is labeled as a hero.
They end up being friends, but not without a lot of pushing on Finch's part. Violet doesn't really want to be around anyone too much.
Her sister Eleanor was in a car wreck with her almost a year ago and Eleanor died and she didn't. Violet feels like this is her fault because she told her to take the ice-slicked bridge.
So Violet has her own issues. She won't get in a car, things like that. Sweet, wonderful Finch brings out all of the good in Violet.
Brings her back to herself. They do a cool report for school together where they wander around and look at wonders in their town. It's so wonderful and I would love to do that!
They do fall in love, and I was so hoping this would help Finch. But throughout the book he is still fighting these death feelings. He has a mom and two sisters, but they don't see anything wrong, they just say that is Finch.
He has a dad who left them for another woman and her son and he is a big jerk of a dad always saying Finch is a loser etc. I think Theodore Finch is a wonderful character.
Just like so many out there that take there lives or lose their lives. I can see how wonderful he is, but he just can't. Obviously, Finch takes his life, but I'm not going to say how he does it.
I'm not going to say any more about this wonderful book but to tell everyone to read it! Read it! Understand it! Love it! These things are real!
People like this are real! And there should be no room left in the world for bullies or people that don't understand mental illness. Get off your high horse and let others live the way they want and try to have some compassion!
I can't find the other quote I highlighted but I think I got my point across! I'm not going to add her personal parts of the note because that may not be right to do unless she asks me too.
I'm just going to add the basic parts and some hotlines. Every forty seconds, someone is left behind to cope with the loss. In All The Bright Places, Finch worries a lot about labels.
There is, unfortunately, a good deal of stigma surrounding suicide and mental illness. Often, mental and emotional illnesses go undiagnosed because the person suffering symptoms is too ashamed to speak up, or because their loved ones either fail to or choose not to recognize the signs.
According to Mental Health America, an estimated 2. As many as 80 percent of people with this illness go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. If you think something is wrong, speak up.
You are not alone. It is not your fault. Help is out there. I know myself well enough to know that no one else can keep you awake or keep you from sleeping.
It will never do my feelings justice. The sort of sadness that makes you ache all over and draws the air from your lungs.
The wall is a place to keep track of thoughts, as fast as they come, and remember them when they go away. Anything interesting or weird or even halfway inspired goes up there.
That he saw the beautiful things in our grey world and vehemently refused to succumb to the ugly things that sometimes make it so hard to live.
Finch fought for every single moment and to watch his constant fight thoroughly broke my heart. It were the intense feelings this book gave me. To think and feel and hurt with every fibre of your heart.
I am not perfect. I have secrets. I am messy. Not just my bedroom but me. No one likes messy. They like smiling Violet. I thought about it even when the book was closed, I hurt reading some scenes even though there seemed to be nothing that would qualify such a reaction.
Inside, I try not to take up too much space or make any noise, because if I do, I may wake up the darkness, and I want the darkness to sleep.
Exposed to the eyes of the world. You lived. You survived a really horrible accident. Get up. Do this. Do that. Should you read it?
But be careful, it might easily crush your heart. And now excuse me while I finally yield to my sadness and actually cry.
